Bird Families of the World

Scarlet Minivet

Cuckooshrikes are widespread in forest and savanna habitats of Asia, Australia, and Africa. Cuckooshrikes are not closely related to either the cuckoos or to the shrikes; the name probably comes from the grey color of many of the Cuckooshrikes.

The family is Campephagidae

There are 89 species placed in 11 genera.

So far I have photographed 19 different species. In case I photographed the male and the female I have added a photograph of both.

To make it easier you can find the genus name combined with the species name (visible when displaying the photograph)
